Episode Notes
Guest agents: Lisa, the Hartford Repertory Company

Episode Quotes
Prince Samandal: It is refreshing to find a sense of humor in a woman so attractive and intelligent.
Lisa: Tarkus says intelligence in a woman is a liability, makes her go after things she shouldn't have.
Prince Samandal: Oh? Then he must also believe that they are only capable of cooking and bearing babies. I would have thought he was more liberal where women are concerned.
Lisa: In some ways. But he expects them to do as they're told.
Prince Samandal: And do you do as you are told?
Lisa: When it pleases me.
Prince Samandal: Ah, but what pleases you? Fine clothes, jewelery, gifts?
Lisa: It pleases me not to be taken for granted. Even when something is inevitable, Your Highness, I prefer at least the pretense of having a choice.

Lisa: What shall we drink to?
Prince Samandal: Some toasts are better unspoken.

Colonel Hatafis: Those are very beautiful earrings. A necklace to match would be rather charming, don't you think?
Lisa: Are you trying to bribe me?
Colonel Hatafis: Of course.
Lisa: There's some people I just don't care to do business with.
Colonel Hatafis: I thought you did business with anybody who could pay.
